Virginia's is the place to stay in Kenmare. Neil is very thoughtful and welcoming and also very helpful. He rang us shortly after we settled in to let us known that our cars tire had become flat. He assured us that he would have a repair shop take care of it in the morning and sure enough all went smoothly... More

My bf and I stayed one night in this property and enjoyed our stay. The room was simple, but nice and VERY CLEAN (which is the most important thing, in my opinion), the host was very friendly -as mostly Irish people are- and we could sleep perfectly (the bed was comfortable and we didn't hear any noise from the street)....

We had the opportunity to stay at Virginia's last week - it was wonderful! Our room was spotless and very comfortable - the bathroom was the largest we have had in Ireland so far. I felt pampered! Even though our room was at the front of the building, traffic sounds were not a problem. There is also a very nice... More

Virginia's Guesthouse is the B&B against which all other B&Bs should be measured. Neil and Noreen have done an amazing job in running this Guesthouse located in the very heart of Kenmare. Kenmare itself is the ideal jumping off point for a trip around the Ring of Kerry. A small town that really consists of 3 interlocking streets that form... More

My husband and I stayed here for three nights near the end of a six month vacation around Europe and without a doubt, Virginia's was one of our best stays. The breakfast was simply top notch. Others have commented that they thought it weird to order breakfast and set the time the night before, but this was very common practice... More

Virginia's Guesthouse is conveniently located on the main street of Kenmare, on the Ring of Kerry in western Ireland. It's not so convenient for parking, but our host Neil Harrington greeted us by finding us a parking spot on the street right in front of the house. He then insisted on carrying our bags upstairs to our room, over our... More

I found Virginia's in my guide book and booked a room in advance, when my plans changed, I was able to change my reservation without any problem. When I arrived, I was informed that even though I had changed my reservation, I had still given them the wrong date, luckily they were able to accommodate me. The place is easy... More

Virginia's Guesthouse is located on Henry St the main throughfare in Kenmare for the Ring of Kerry so it is a very busy street. The B&B is conveniently located for shopping, restaurants, pubs and sightseeing. The only disadvantage with the location is that there is limited parking near the B&B. Overnight parking is allowed but during the day until 4pm... More

Neil was a super host. Very helpful. Could not have been in a better location. And Noreen's breakfast were great- wonderful presentation and some eclectic (and good) combinations. Come with a great appetite.
